submission-based sites discussion

Soliciting user participation online is a tricky business, especially if you're asking people for quality contributions. Of course, this is what I've been doing at {fray} for years. So when a recent conversation at MetaFilter turned to submission-based sites, my ears perked up. I had my say, too. My basic point was, if you're asking people for submissions, you've gotta pay them somehow.

Speaking of, did you know that Lance Arthur launched a new project? Or that Lance Anderson performs every Wednesday in LA? Or that Luke Seemann is going to open a restaurant? It's true!
